House Extensions

Improve, don’t move

Is it time for a house extension?

A new house extension is the perfect fit for modern times. Moving home is an expensive task, with many hidden and rising costs like stamp duty, which can soon make the whole process unaffordable. As a result, many families choose to extend their current home to fit in with their new requirements and potentially growing family.

Is planning required for your house extension?

When deciding to extend your house, it is essential to know what is possible legally and when planning permission is or isn’t required. We work closely with our sister company Progress Planning & Land Consultants Ltd, who can advise you on the legal aspects that need to be considered for a house extension. Many clients have already instructed an architect before coming to us to quote for their project, but if not, we can recommend one of our endorsed architects. Having correct workable drawings is essential.

We have built many house extensions over the years from simple to contemporary designs. We love working closely with clients on these projects as each is personal and unique to their desires.

We are able to quote accurately and competitively for a house extension when we have high-quality drawings produced by a suitable architect along with a detailed specification of the client’s requirements. For example, knowing what type of light, the number and location of lights and switches, floor and wall finishes such as wallpaper, tiles or paint are all important factors. All this information allows us to price most competitively, and the client to have a like-for-like quote from other contractors.

When carrying out a house extension, it is an excellent opportunity to consider your entire home regarding retrofitting, renovations, repairs and maintenance and energy assessment.

If you have an upcoming house extension, please call us to discuss your project and to arrange a site visit.

Replaced Garage

Robert and the team replaced my old garage (with an asbestos roof) with a very nice larger garage. Everything was done when they said it would be. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely use Tiffin again.

Barbara, Hertfordshire

Highly Recommended

Robert Tiffin successfully diagnosed and treated the increasing damp in the cellar of our old house, something several previous firms had failed to do. He was professional and efficient and provided an excellent report.

Susan, Middlesex

Excellent Work

Tiffin handled all the aspects of the job really well, keeping us informed and sourcing high quality materials. They did a good job of organising all the various trades to do their parts in an efficient manner.

Matt P, Buckinghamshire

Professional and polite service, fair and reasonable price

The “Tiffin difference” was immediately noticeable. We were left with a strong sense that Robert and the team were professional and reliable in their approach. We will be using Tiffin for our next project.

Craig R, Hertfordshire

Unhesitatingly Recommended

Robert Tiffin is helpful and professional. His advice is sound and he will save you money where he can. Not surprisingly, the people he employs are also hard working and professional. Schedules are maintained and when work is completed everywhere is left clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

John D, Buckinghamshire


Excellent advice on cause of damp in converted block of flats and successful repairs too. Extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of causes of building failure and damage and reinstatement for insurance purposes too. Highly recommended.

Steven Lazarus, London

Professional firm with high standards

Eco Tiffin sorted out my damp problem in an outbuilding, insulated and decorated it, turning it into a pleasant and very usable storeroom. Their knowledge and experience inspired confidence, and I felt that I was given honest advice about the most sensible way to pursue this project, without wasting money unnecessarily.
